Thor: Tales of AsgardThis thing is an animated prequel to the movie Thor, taking place when Thor and Loki were teenagers, probably around the age of sixteen. I decided to give it a watch, thinking maybe it'd have some more back story to everything, especially to Thor and Loki's relationship.Thor: Tales of Asgard3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And... Not really so much.
The villain was a character never even mentioned in the movie, the Front Giants weren't really bad guys (on the subject, I kept waiting for Laufey to show up, but the Frost Giant king wasn't him), and they didn't really go into Thor and Loki's relationship, or their relationship with their family. Hell, Frigga (Thor and Loki's mother) wasn't even mentioned.
The animation was also hella weird, a little choppy, and the style was kind of unpleasant to look at. The characters don't even look like themselves. When did Loki have brown hair? What the heck is up with the Warriors Three? Why does Sif look so pisse

Now for my review of tales of Asgard.
Go get it, it's really good.
With two commentaries, a free episode of the new series the avengers earths mightiest heroes, a engaging storyline with the heroes three. This is just a warp wiping fun. If you often know my story references of heavens. You know Asgard's is probably the most famous place I would rather go to. Well this is probably the best advertisement for vacation spot ever, Asgard the Golden city,Jötunheimr enjoy our wonderful frozen mountains, go skiing it down our frigid bounties. And there's even more locations in this great movie to visit. I don't want to spoil it but let's just say if you love that seeing a wonder woman where all the girls were naked, you'll like that particular scene again in this movie.

The 'Dynamic Pose' Contest! + EditsEdit: This is now an open contest! You do not have to be a member to participate! Please read carefully the contest info below, especially if you're unfamiliar with the way our contests are run.Alright my minions. It's that time of month again, and I promised you something good for September's contest.The 'Dynamic Pose' Contest! + Edits2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I call it the Dynamic Pose Contest.
Yes, you probably know where this is going just judging from the title. The point of this contest is for you to draw one (or more) of your characters in a particularly dynamic pose. I'll be looking for usage of foreshortening, perspective, and squash-and-stretch techniques. (And if you don't know what any of these terms mean, then you can easily Google them. I checked. Google gives you good results if you just plug in the words.)
I'll be judging this competition based on how much effort you put in to breaking your character out of their usual poses. Some of us already know how to draw dynamic poses, while some of us have yet
Fabric Stores and AndrocentrismA message from an artist and someone who works at a fabric store: Stop gendering your babies with colour!Fabric Stores and Androcentrism4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every day I have parents and grandparents-to-be come in and have fabric cut to make quilts, blankets, baby clothes, diapers, curtains, etc for their soon to be newborn. And yet, I'm always asked the same questions over and over:
"What do you have that's for girls?"
"Where is the boys section?"
"We won't know the gender, so we need to keep it neutral until it's born"
And worst of all: "Does this fabric look too girly to you?"
I usually give some sort of half-hearted, "Well, it's your choice, I'm sure they'll love it!" response, but my secret answer is: QUIT IT. No, that fabric is not "too girly". Why would an infant boy care if his pillow has pink flowers on it? Why would a girl care if it has footballs or zoo animals on it? Why are pink and blue so wholeheartedly reserved for girls and for boys that the thought of giving that colour to the other gender is laughable, or worse

Learning to read, with Jolly Jack.Well, that was fun.Learning to read, with Jolly Jack.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's just go over what I posted yesterday: I voiced that I have no opinion on guns in America, because I don't live there and as such; don't care. I said that I, personally, am afraid of guns and think they're industrial killing machines. And I posed a vague, hypothetical question that could have been applied to any situation where an old law/doctrine is in effect.
That's it. Nothing more. Harshest word in there was "change" followed by a question mark. Not "ban", not "make guns illegal" and certainly not "outlaw free speech and trial by jury", which some people with a slightly looser grasp on reality seem to think go hand in hand with owning the firearms I said I don't care about.
Well, today, I am going to post an opinion: if you're the kind of insecure, paranoid little twit that flies off the handle when someone poses a simple question, and who holds weapons and the laws that permit them with such religious reverence that you perceive that question as not

It's been a bit of a mental start to 2013, with Jenn getting a new job, a bunch of birthdays and events, and a lack of money forever looming overhead!
I've mostly been busy working on my costume and kit for a new LARP system I'm joining next month, so when I have some good pictures of that, I'll share them here. It's not often I will share pictures of my original characters on deviantART (in fact, I don't think I've ever done it), but I'm really proud of the kit for this. A bunch of Parlé are all joining the same system, so hopefully we can get a few good shots before time in!

On the con-front, things are less busy than usual, due to clashing events, and one or two that we usually attend for fun that we're opting out of this year. We did London Anime Con at the start of the month, which was a fantastic event. Still t

Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc (1412—1431) is the ultimate iconic rebellious teenager. In nineteen years she lived a fuller and more exciting life, effecting the future histories of the two most powerful nations on Earth, than most can even dream of, and then died a martyr’s death for her cause and beliefs, for which she was declared a saint 500 years later. Her story has been told in many novels, movies and comic books. She was the girl who God gave a mission to drive the occupying English out of northern France. So fervid was her demand for action that she was made an advisor to the French high command and led them to victory after victory in the cause of F
If you are considering going into the industry....If you are an artist or want to be one, especially if you want to get into the VFX industry, you should watch this:If you are considering going into the industry....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It touches on a few things I feel are important to understand as an artist and even as consumers of art:
1.) Art is not an exact science. It can be difficult to put a price tag on it, let alone the often very complicated processes of making it.
2.) Computers are tools that facilitate our work but they DO NOT do the work for us.
3.) Don't get into this industry for the money. If you go into this line of work, you do it because you love it. If someone happens to get lucky or has a really great idea and he/she hits it big, GREAT! Good for him/her. But don't go in expecting that to happen to you. Chances are it won't. If you are lucky, you will find a nice middleclass job you can support yourself and your family on for a while...... until....
4.) Unfortunately, a lot of employers see artists as disposable. When they no longer need you, they will kick you to the curb an

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

The legends were true?!Geek culture has many myths and legends, ranging from fabled disks and cassettes containing unreleased sequels of beloved games to Easter Eggs found only within the code of early versions of certain titles.The legends were true?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The most well known of these legends, the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, The Excalibur of Geek mythology, is that of the lost E.T. Cartridges – arguably the worst video game in history - buried somewhere in the New Mexico desert.
Now, they’ve been hiding unwanted stuff out in the deserts of America as far back as 1923. When filming finished on Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments, they worked out it’d be cheaper to just bury the set than dismantle it. This lent the E.T. Cart legend a little credibility, but even I was skeptical of anything ever being found….
….my word, Indy! My word!
Tomb RaidedCompleted Tomb Raider. It does become slightly more player-friendly as it progresses, but it's too little too late. I really do think this title is made up of EVERYTHING that is wrong with games at the moment: it rides on an old title that it really has nothing to do with, it leads you round by the nose, it relies on dull collectable items for longevity, it thinks "maturity" means everything must be caked in gore, it's wracked through with quick-time-events and it ignores that ALL of these points have been failings of a zillion other titles over the last 10 years, leaving the developers no reason other that sheer lack of talent, imagination or common sense for their inclusion!!Tomb Raided3 years ago in Personal More Like This
